Small Signal Modeling and Closed Loop Control Design of ZVS Current-fed Half-Bridge L-L Type Dc/Dc Converter with Active-Clamp

Akshay K. Rathore, Ashoka K. S. Bhat, and Ramesh Oruganti

Abstract—This paper presents the small signal model and closed loop control design using average current control for an L-L type active-clamped zero-voltage switching (ZVS) current-fed isolated DC-DC converter. State-space averaging technique is used to derive the small signal model. The controller is designed for fixed-frequency duty cycle modulation and works for wide input voltage and load variation. A complete design procedure is presented. Frequency response curves are obtained at different input voltage and load conditions to verify the stability and design, and to evaluate the performance of the controller. Simulation results for step changes in load are given to check the transient response of the converter.

Index Terms—Fuel cells, Small Signal Modeling, Closed Loop Control, DC-DC Converter, Zero-voltage switching.
